There are several virtual private networks on the market, commonly known as VPN (acronym for 'virtual private network'), which can be downloaded from their website for free.

Generally, and as we explained in our article dedicated to VPN , all of them will allow you to use the Internet anonymously and change the location of your IP so you can access that content blocked in your country and available only in another or others.

But before you drown in the sea of ​​options that you have at your disposal, at PCWorld Spain we have done the field work for you and today we bring you the 5 best free VPNs of today.

What is the best free VPN?

Determining which VPN service is the best of all is not an easy task, especially since all of them present some drawback. While some can only be used from a single device, others will stop working past the limit of contracted megs.

Taking into account all the pros and cons, the free proxy of CyberGhost is surely the best option. It is true that it takes a while to connect and you lose your connection after three hours, but it is highly recommended to watch videos.

Although TunnelBear and outperform the CyberGhost VPN in some aspects, it is more than likely that the user will find the available MBs in their free versions, especially the first of them, insufficient.

On the other hand, Hotspot Shield has not been done with the first position in this ranking because, when you install it, you automatically give it permission to flood your advertising and change your system configuration. That has led some to classify it as malware .


The first drawback of the TunnelBear VPN is that it does not operate from Spain, so users resident in Spain can only use it to consult pages only available in their country when they are abroad.

Specifically, this service only has servers operating from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France and Japan. It can also be used from Australia but only if a payment subscription plan is contracted.

One of the most attractive features of this VPN is undoubtedly the high speed that can reach: about 12 MB per second, and also both the installation process and the use of the interface are very intuitive.

TunnelBear seems very suitable to protect your browsing data when connecting to a public Wi-Fi network, especially thanks to the 'Vigilant Mode' feature, which blocks any suspicious content when you lose your connection to the private network.

If you hesitate between betting on the free service or choosing one of the two premium installments, keep in mind that the zero cost option has a limit of 500 MB per month, which you can increase up to one GB if you write a tweet talking about TunnelBear.

Instead, paying $ 9.99 per month (about € 8), you'll get unlimited megas to surf the Internet without worrying about eavesdroppers, the number of countries you can access or the number of devices you can connect to.

Basic specifications

· Operative from Spain: No

· Data limit: 500 MB / month

· Number of devices: 5

· Compatibility: Windows, macOS, iOS, Android


Although it is not as good as its paid version, the free VPN Windscribe connection also offers very useful features that will help you keep your identity private and trick your browser into thinking you are in a different city.

Among the benefits you will get when downloading Windscribe, we highlight the possibility of using it in an unlimited number of devices, so that you can use the same account on all your computers and laptops.

In addition, you can protect your device from viruses and malware content with the built-in firewall, and say goodbye to the annoying and tiresome ads with an excellent advertising blocker.

Of course, among its limitations is the fact that you can only choose between 11 servers, which means that you can only change your IP for another from 11 different locations. In the paid version, you can choose from 50 countries.

On the other hand, if you download Windscribe to your device for free, you can only use a maximum of 10 gigas a month. That means that, once used, your computer or laptop will no longer be protected.

We recommend, therefore, take a look first at all the payment service features. You can choose between the monthly plan of 9 dollars - some 7.65 € , the annual plan of 4.08 dollars - some 3.47 € , or the biannual plan of 3.70 dollars - some 3.14 € .

Basic specifications

· Operative from Spain: Yes

· Data limit: 10 MB / month

· Number of devices: Unlimited

· Compatibility: Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Linux


Although it is not by far the most used browser, as we analyzed in this other article , Opera is the only one that includes a VPN. It is not an extension, but one more feature of its most up-to-date version.

Apart from being completely free, the fact that it is integrated in the browser means that this network has no limits in terms of data transfer or browsing speed.

Its only limitation, however, is the origin of the servers. For now you can only find some from the United States, Canada and Germany, which means that you can not see content only available in Spain from abroad.

It is very useful to watch football matches in streaming or also live television from the official website of American channels such as NBC, which restricts their reproductions outside of their country of origin.

This is largely due to the fact that for now it is only a beta version. Opera is working to improve your free VPN and now you can change your location by selecting one of these three regions: America, Europe and Asia.

To enjoy the VPN, open the drop-down menu by clicking on the red "O" icon in the upper left corner. Select 'Settings', followed by 'Privacy and security' and click on the box next to 'Activate the VPN' under the 'VPN' section.

Basic specifications

· Operative from Spain: Yes

· Data limit: No

· Number of devices: Unlimited

· Compatibility: Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Linux


The free CyberGhost service is available for residents in Spain, who can use it from Windows and MacOS devices. The application is only available for iOS and Android in its paid version, although it does include a free trial week.

This proxy ensures that you can surf the web privately, so that even your Internet provider will not know the web pages you consult. For this, CyberGhost will change your IP address and will also protect you from possible onlookers.

That said, this is not the ideal service if you want to visit websites blocked in your location or if you want a high speed of navigation, since these functions are only available in the payment options.

Another drawback of the free version is that the application will be disconnected automatically after having used it for three hours. In this case, you must re-enter your personal information associated with your account.

As a positive aspect, it should be noted that CyberGhost does not limit the megas that you can consume while browsing the network, which makes it especially a good ally to watch online videos .

Be that as it may, it seems reasonable to at least take into account the advantages of premium subscriptions. For € 5.99 per month if you hire the service for one year or € 3.50 per month for two, you will have almost 700 servers at your fingertips.

Basic specifications

· Operative from Spain: Yes

· Data limit: No

· Number of devices: 5

· Compatibility: Windows, macOS

As TunnelBear, VPN has a limit data transfer in this case 2 GB. Whoever wants to have more, can opt for the Plus fee -with 75 GB at your disposal- or, better yet, with the Premium quota with unlimited data.

This means that customers who choose to use the network for free, will surely not be able to enjoy high quality videos, although the broadband offered may be sufficient to surf the Internet.

The free registration also allows you to simultaneously connect only one device, be it Windows, macOS, Android, iOS or Linux. On the other hand, with the Premium account, you can enjoy your private connection in five devices at the same time.

It is true that the subscription has more advantages than betting on the gratuity, but it is also true that the option at no cost is one of the best of all that we have tried. It will also help you to know if it is worth it or not to pay for it.

If at the end you dare to subscribe, the monthly cost is 4.99 dollars (about 4 €) or 9.99 (about 8), depending on whether you choose the Plus or Premium respectively. There is a discount of up to 45% if you decide to pay one year in advance.

With any of the three options, you will enjoy maximum privacy and freedom of expression, as it will also unlock the most popular restricted sites in the country where you are.

Basic specifications

· Operative from Spain: Yes

· Data limit:  2 GB /month

· Number of devices: 1

· Compatibility: Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Linux
